ABSTRACT

This second edition is essentially a reference book written from the point of view of a clinician and stressing the author's personal conclusions. It presents well the American attitude toward the problems of pelvic cancer in women and reviews the English-language literature dealing with them.

In fact, the author deprecates pathologists in general and states that one must know his pathologist to interpret reports. The details of the problems that the pathologist must face are given scant attention. It is, however, primarily a clinician's report and as such carries the unquestioned authority of the author. The book is well printed on glossy
